"Last year's competition attracted a lot of interest and was a great success. The response surpassed expectations. It was an opportunity to showcase local and regional talent from around the Bay Area and further afield. Entrants came from Hercules, San Francisco and Turlock. We look forward to replicating that success and generating even greater interest this year. Everyone is welcome to enter and to attend," stated Jemoke Hill, organizer of Union City Teen Idol.
